New DVD Releases: "Beowulf", "Goya's Ghost" and "Darjeeling"
02.26.08 by REELZ
Beowulf, available in both standard and extra-bloody unrated editions, leads this week's crop of new DVD releases. Also debuting are the vampires-versus-Alaska horror flick 30 Days of Night, the uproarious black comedy Death at a Funeral, Javier Bardem and Natalie Portman's period piece Goya's Ghosts and Slipstream, the latest directorial effort from Sir Anthony Hopkins.
Our pick for this week is Wes Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited, starring Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman and Owen Wilson as three brothers who embark on a spiritual expedition across India in the hopes of healing old wounds and finding closure after their father's death. Included on the disc is The Hotel Chevalier, Anderson's splendid Darjeeling prologue, featuring Natalie Portman's now-infamous "nude" scene. Watch it with your friends and enjoy a healthy debate over just what the definition of "nudity" really is.
